My apologies that Shit You Should Know is late today. I accidentally watched 10 minutes of The View this morning, and it threw my whole day off.
It’s that season again! The season for rain and snow and the urgent desire to quit life and move to the Caribbean? YES! THAT ONE. But on a more realistic note, it’s also the season for Girl Scout cookies. Maybe thin mints won’t change your entire life like fleeing to the Dominican and becoming a yoga instructor, but they will make the day you receive them better. So I guess what I’m saying is, invest in your future! (And America’s or whatever.) Use this link to locate sellers nearby using your zip code.
The Broncos’ defense won the Super Bowl on Sunday. Peyton was also there, but more importantly, he got drunk afterward. If, like me, you’re so accustomed to ignoring ads that you can’t reprogram your brain to pay attention, here’s a good rundown of this year’s Super Bowl commercials—the good, the bad, and the wtf.
By now you probably know that Beyonce dropped a video and new single, Formation, last week. If you haven’t watched yet you should. Besides being visually stunning, Beyonce gives a master class on black identity, race and gender issues, and as always, dance. It’s by far her most political video yet, and the backlash is already starting. To that I say, buy some Girl Scout cookies and simmer.
What I hate this week: For the first time ever, there was something great on my FB newsfeed. Behold the food diary of LA juice store owner, Amanda Chantal Bacon. Amanda basically eats air and twigs, resulting in the most unintentionally funny thing I’ve seen since the first Twilight movie. You know those moments when you feel very grateful that you’re you and not someone else? I hope you’re all having one right now.
What I love this week: It’s almost Valentine’s Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Follow my advice to have the best one yet.
First, put on something sexy and red. HAS to be red! Next, head to the gas station and pick up a 12 pack of mid-priced beer. Don’t go cheap… this is your special day! Then—and this is the most important step—get in bed and drink it alone while watching murder shows on ID! <3 <3 <3
Happy Valentine’s Day!
